MATTHEW GOOD/MATTHEW GOOD BAND

Why don’t I have a child? I’m flat out terrified, scared, petrified of having to raise a child and highly doubt myself as a father. Kim would be a FANTASTIC mother though. I love my friends kids. I play with them and teach them bad habits, then they go home and become a full time job for their parents. This is something I NEED to get over. I wanted children before, on the other hand I don’t want to watch my child go through something like I did. I don’t want to feel completely helpless.

 

Cancer is not genetic. It coincidentally is common on my mother side of the family. Grandma, Me, Grandpa and my Aunt in Winnipeg. My aunt is on to a tougher chemo therapy and feeling terrible at the moment. Her feet feel like they’re burning, they’re peeling and her mouth is full of sores, it hurts when she eats something and she’s sleeping quite a bit. I slept for most of 2008, but I didn’t have any peeling or sores.

 

Apparently my back was so sore in 2008 Kim couldn’t even touch my toes without me screaming in pain. I was on a pain medication, my chiropractor came, I had acupuncture, and finally a cortisone shot right into my spine that worked. My first of 7 cortisone shots.

 

I had a really good talk with my dad over lunch with him! I told him what I thought about being a father. He told me I’d be a better father than him. That would be very hard to top! My parents are nothing short of FANTASTIC!!!

 

Matthew Good Band & Matthew Good. Matthew Good Band came first and released 6 albums. They blew up on their 4th album “Underdogs” they were everywhere! I even saw Matthew Good interviewed on the CBC news. They did some alternative rock and some quiet mood music and the bulk of it I liked! This is from the “Underdogs” album released in 1997. FYI HE HAS A POTTY MOUTH!!!

“Beautiful Midnight” is my favourite album of theirs, released in 1998. Yes I love this song and Rob, Dave, Rydell and I played this along with 30 or more songs?

Then the 2001 release “Audio of Being” was the final album from the Matthew Good Band.

Here’s 2 hits they had that were softer yet awesome from “Underdogs” and “Beautiful Midnight”, yes he’s Canadian. From B.C. I believe.

Matthew Good as a solo artist was pretty hit and miss for me. These are two of his solo songs I enjoy.

I stopped following him after his first 2 solo albums, just wasn’t for me, most of it anyways. If I don’t like 80% of an album I don’t buy it! I don’t buy a song here and a song there on iTunes only bonus songs on a Greatest Hits album or a Deluxe Version of an album, other than that it’s an entire album or nothing because I most likely won’t listen to it.

 

Complaining won’t solve anything. If you want something done your way, just do it yourself!”
